Army issues convoy advisory for Big Island
The Army says Oahu-based units are due to convoy from Kawaiahae Harbor to Pohakuloa Training Area on the Big Island starting this weekend.
The Army is asking motorists to be alert and drive with care Saturday through Tuesday — the days of the troop movement.
The soldiers are due to travel on Akioni Pule, Queen Kaahumanu Highway, Waikoloa Road and Mamalahoa-Saddle Road Corridor.
The Army says it’s working with local authorities to coordinate the troop movement.
